Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Soul Surfer logs strong debut

“Soul Surfer,” the true story of surfer Bethany Hamilton’s triumph over adversity, came in fourth at the box office in its opening weekend, better than movie industry experts had predicted, according to several movie industry reports.

 

The film earned $11.1 million.

 

That’s good news for Rip Curl, Bethany’s sponsor and the surf company sponsor of the film, and potentially great news for the surf industry’s junior’s sector.

 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 55% of Friday’s audience was under the age of 25, and 48% under the age of 18.

 

The movie is expected to do well via word of mouth after getting a rare A+ rating from CinemaScore, a market research firm in Las Vegas that surveys audiences to get their reactions to films.
